Of course you, Bob and Art are correct.  Just because the "gentlemen's 
agreement," the ARRL bandplan doesn't specify a 10m satellite uplink 
doesn't make it an ITU taboo.  My apologies to all.

Thanks Art for the fine URL pointers.  They have been bookmarked for future 
reference.

Now, someone refresh my memory why the ARRL specifically calls the 10m 
portion a satellite downlink segment?
